Opposition grows in Greenwich to ‘unreasonable destruction’ needed for planned 192-unit apartment building

Under the 8-30g law, which has come under criticism by state lawmakers from Greenwich, local land-use agencies cannot deny affordable-housing proposals except when there are public-health or safety concerns, giving them much less latitude in the approval process. SJP Properties, a New York City-based real estate developer, is working with a local developer, Eagle Ventures, on the project. The formal application for Sherwood Place has not yet been placed on the agenda for the planning commission. The proposal also calls for 288 parking spaces, including an underground parking facility. The full application was filed last week at Town Hall.
